  • I don't get why Warner Bros. is so strict about not having Tom and Jerry talk, and then constantly surround them with other animals (including other cats and mice) who do talk. Why can the other animals talk, but not Tom and Jerry? All this does is put a limit on what can be done with the characters. T&J should be allowed to talk at least some of the time.
    Could everyone please stop with all the "2D animation is dead/dying", "Theatrical animation is dying", WB is dying" doomsaying? Seriously, guys. It's getting old. Every medium goes through a dark phase. It's not The End every time that something bad happens.

    We should do a reversal on 3d animation.

    3D animation isn't the enemy. People think that CG animation is killing hand drawn animation and that simply isn't true. It's only the majority of animated features that are rendered in CGI. TV cartoons are still mostly hand drawn. This isn't about 2D versus 3D. There's enough room in the world of animation for both styles. That's not the issue here.

    The issue is that folks are too quick to hold up signs that read "The End is near" when something in the industry goes slightly askew. It's not always smooth sailing. There are going to be some rough patches here and there. We need to just ride it out and see how things develop before we declare that things are hopeless.

    I unironically love the theme song and intro for the Disney Channel's "Donald Duck Presents". TDC later changed the show's title to "Quack Attack!" with a new theme and intro, but the first will always be the best to me. That theme song is an earworm!

    I never heard of this version I only knew it as Quack Attack. Seems like it had original bumpers too, rather than the awkward "clips with trendy graphics" interstitials of Quack Attack. Shame they changed it really.

    You can find the original Donald Duck Presents intro on YouTube. There's no new animation, just clips from the theatrical shorts, but the theme song is really catchy.

    If Warner Bros. Discovery doesn't want a bunch of cartoons on HBO Max, the studio should create a separate streaming service especially for the cartoons.
    I don't get how Warner Bros. has full access to the Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera libraries, but barely utilizes them, even for Boomerang. I don't get it.
    What with everything that's been going with Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and HBO Max and WB's merger with Discovery, I definitely feel like we're on the precipice of something, although it's not exactly clear what.
    I really wish that people would stop saying "cartoons and anime", as though they're 2 different things. Anime ARE cartoons. Just cartoons from Japan. Coming from Japan doesn't make it any less a cartoon. We don't give Candian, Latin or British cartoons a separate moniker, so why do people insist on doing so for Japanese animation?
    I never understood Hollywood's fascination with turning cartoons into live action movies. I grew up in the 1970s. I've always enjoyed the opposite: turning live actors into cartoons!

    Cartoon characters in live-action movies, for whatever reason, have a decent track record of making money. Animated movies based on pre-existing characters, for the most part*, at least in the west, do not.

    *Exceptions I can think of; Care Bears, Rugrats, Pokémon (one time), Spongebob, and a few "adult" ones like Simpsons, South Park and Beavis & Butthead.

    Me neither.
    It kind of annoys me when people come on to the forums and ask other members questions that they could find the answers to just as easily by doing an internet search. If a question is off topic and you know that it's off topic, why ask it?

    Folks, we are not the internet. It's not our job to research things for you. Don't ask us a bunch of questions just because you don't feel like doing the research yourself.

    Amen. I came back from my hiatus a couple months earlier than planned to post a profile post saying just that. I personally think it's rude that people doing that are wasting other people's valuable time. It drives me nuts have many people actually indulge these inconsiderate people.

    Is it wrong that I have zero interest in seeing The Batman? It doesn't look bad. It just looks like nothing that I haven't already seen (this coupled with the fact that I don't have the patience to sit through a 3 hour movie).

    I'm Batman-ed out. I just want to see a good Superman movie before I die. Is that so wrong?

    I agree. It just looks like it's going through the Burton/Nolan/Snyder motions again.

    There's not much Burton in there. There's a fair bit of the Joker movie and the Gotham TV series. That's the thing; not only did I not feel it was not giving my anything I hadn't seen from Batman before, I thought it wasn't giving me anything I hadn't seen from Batman before within the last 20 years.

    You can also throw Adam West Batman into the equation even if he's not a deputized arm of the law.

I speculate this third pandemic winter could end up being it's very last one, ever (we don't need to have too many).
Went to TGI Friday's for my birthday yesterday. Had a great time there despite the chilly weather in Leicester Square.
I've officially turned 26 years old.
Nowadays, Cartoon Network have done everything they can to bury Powerpuff Girls Z, not referencing it in Crossover Nexus and other Cartoon Network media. Why?!
